Have you ever fallen asleep with your arm at an odd angle and awakened to sharp pain in your shoulder? Due to the shoulder’s unique mobility and vast range of motion, there can be many causes of shoulder pain and dysfunction.
The shoulder can be easily stressed while at work, playing sports or exercising, or pushing it too far without realizing it.
Common roots of shoulder pain include:
- Pinched Nerves
- Sprains and Strains
- Joint Stiffness
- Adhesive Capsulitis / Frozen Shoulder
- Bone Fractures
- Rotator Cuff / Muscle Tear
At Long Beach Spine and Rehabilitation Chiropractic Health Center, our chiropractic approach to shoulder pain is to analyze your entire structural system. If joint subluxations or fixations are identified, we first “adjust” or correct them to set the proper joint biomechanics.
This releases structural and nerve pressure and helps restore the healthy flow of nerve impulses between your brain and your body parts and helps rebalance your system. Once proper joint biomechanics are restored, we address the soft tissue components, provide stabilization exercises and help rehabilitate the shoulder to its maximum potential.
Specific techniques we use for shoulder pain include:
- Chiropractic Therapy
- Massage Therapy
- Nutritional Management
- Exercise Programs
- Patient Education
